SAN FRANCISCO--Volkswagen Group of America is hoping Web access will heat up sales of its Routan minivan. VW will offer Uconnect Web, a mobile Internet router, as a dealer-installed option. The system receives Internet signals through cellular data networks, then creates a Wi-Fi hot spot in and around the car. Monthly subscriptions to Autonet's Internet service start at $29. The device sells for $499 in the aftermarket.
